Anyone using P80 Roof Rack Load Bars?

Post by bmdubya1198 »

Just reposting this from the P80 section, figured the P2 guys may have some insight.

I've got a set of load bars from a '98 V70XC that somebody wants to buy, but he lives about 2 hours from me and is unsure if they will fit his 2003 XC70. Needless to say I'd rather not take that drive to meet him halfway (let alone in my rattly GLT) and find out they don't fit his car.
Does anybody know if the P80 load bars (PN 9483630) will fit a P2?

Won't fit. Different spacing between them.

P2 and P3 V70s use the same though.

Well the length is adjustable on these, are they too large?

Front and rear bars are different length, FWIW. Curious to hear the details from someone who has actually tried. Too bad we don't have JRL around so much these days, you would get the simple answer (No!).

Haha, that sounds about right!

Yes, the front and rear bars are different length, and they are both adjustable by a couple inches. I just wanted to see if anyone has tried it.

Somebody on my other thread said he can try it at some point because he has a set, so we will see!

I've tried a different set. One of them fitted but the other was quite far off. Don't remember more details than that. By far off I think it was something like two inches.

They were the Volvo OE square profile ones where they lie on top of the rail and stick out a little each end. Adjustable a bit but not enough.

Yeah, I know the ones you're talking about, those are another type. We'll see if these ones work today hopefully...
